Security breaches are increasingly disruptive to organisations and can significantly damage an organisation’s reputation and destroy shareholder value.

The cost implications of these breaches can be huge and often expose organisations to litigation. According to a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach event in the United States costs an organisation $8.9 million.

The HP Security Breach Management Solution combines HP’s services expertise with security intelligence software to offer clients a comprehensive approach to protect what matters most to their organisations.

It provides clients with the security intelligence to more quickly identify a breach and react to it, as well as minimise its impact and reduce ongoing exposure from vulnerabilities.

“No matter how proactive you are, it’s nearly impossible for organisations to prevent a breach, but they can take control of how they respond,” said Helen Rich, Country Manager, Enterprise Services, HP. “Combining HP’s portfolio of services and software, the HP Breach Management Solution arms clients with the tools and resources to monitor, manage and respond to breaches head on, minimising their impact while readying for the next attack.”
